IMAP (The Institute of Managed Account Professionals Ltd) in conjunction with Milliman has released the latest data in its 6 monthly Managed Accounts FUM Census long term series

Strong inflows & solid market performance underpinned growth in total Funds under Management in Managed Account services during the 2nd half of 2021

IMAP (The Institute of Managed Account Professionals Ltd) in conjunction with Milliman has released the latest data in its 6 monthly Managed Accounts FUM Census long term series.

As at 31 Dec 2021 Funds Under Management (FUM) in Managed Accounts stood at $131.65 bn, an increase of $21.06 bn in the 6 months from 30 June 2021 FUM total of $111.01 bn.

Toby Potter Chair of IMAP said “The growth rate in managed accounts is accelerating to the point where it is approaching 40% per year.

This growth is up from approximately 30% p.a as recently as June 2021.

The increased use of managed accounts – MDA and SMA - is a good thing not just for the value added in dollar terms, but because it is achieved through personal advice provided to clients.

The value which the systematic approach of managed accounts embodies is even more critical in the worldwide crisis we are currently facing.”

investment markets experienced higher volatility and grew steadily in the second half of 2021

Victor Huang, Milliman’s Practice Leader, Australia advised that “The investment markets grew steadily in the last half of 2021, with the value of the ASX / S&P 200 Accumulation Index experiencing a modest 3.8% over the period, (compared with the 12.9% increase in the prior 6 months).

The level of volatility was definitely higher in the current period, requiring skillful portfolio management for both the short and longer term.

The FUM results split between types of managed accounts is as follows:
